Chet Baker Sings (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 76871) Pacific Jazz, 1954 — Condition: Used
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Looking for classic Chet Baker vocal tracks? This is the stuff! 8 tracks of haunting vocals by a young Chet, sung with a small group from the LA scene with Russ Freeman, Bob Neel and Carson Smith, and featuring trumpet solos next to his vocals: 'But Not For Me", 'Time After Time", "My Funny Valentine", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "There Will Never Be Another You", "I Get Along Without You Very Well", "The Thrill Is Gone" and "Look For The Silver Lining". Every track is great, and these are the original vocal recordings that put Chet on the map! (FAIR CONDITION. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Picture Of Heath
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Near Mint-
That's "Heath", not "health" – as you might think the title's misspelled – as in Jimmy Heath, who arranged most of the numbers on the set! Heath's contribution is a good one too – as it helps Baker create one of his most tightly-wrapped albums of the time, a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CTI, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A great return to form for Chet Baker – his first record in a number of years away from the studio, and proof that his genius could adapt to just about any setting! The album's got a tight focus that's probably one of the keys to its success – a set of arrangements by Don Sebesky that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible work from the Jazz Crusaders – a brilliant album of longer tracks that has them working at their soulful, sophisticated best! The record's great proof that the Crusaders had a depth that many rarely gave them credit here – as they're working here in a complicated set of ... LP, Vinyl record album
McCanna
Pacific Jazz, 1964. Very Good+
A great Latin groove from the mighty Les McCann – a smoking set that adds in extra percussion from Willie Correa – who gives the record a sound that's quite a change from the usual McCann groove! The percussion is wonderful throughout – and given that the great Paul Humphrey is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good+
Bob Brookmeyer in quartet mode, working with John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on drums, and either Bill Anthony or Red Mitchell on bass. The group's got a very Getz-like approach – one that's clean and modern, but with a looseness that's different from the way a west coast combo might ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good+
A seminal bit of west coast cool jazz from the mid 50s – a session led by Cy Touff, a lesser-remembered player from the LA scene, and an instrumentalist who used a bass trumpet! Cy's working here in the company of a host of more familiar names – including Richie Kamuca, Russ Freeman, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Structurally Sound
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Booker Ervin's last sessions – quite different than some of his earlier work, and a great indication of the way that he was stretching his style in the years before his untimely death. The group's a committed band of modernists, and includes a young Charles Tolliver on trumpet, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Near Mint-
One of the gems in Bud Shank's late 50s catalog for Pacific Jazz – a rare album that features him on tenor, instead of his usual alto and flute! The set's an easily-blown quartet one – with a lineup that features Claude Williamson on piano, Don Prell on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jack Montrose Sextet
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Near Mint-
A beautiful example of why the west coast scene was great when it was working at its finest! Jack Montrose cut a rare few albums in the 50s, but this one's a gem – done with help from frequent partner Bob Gordon on baritone sax, and with other players that include Conte Candoli, Shelly Manne ...

Jazz Immortal
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good
Seminal west coast recordings by Clifford Brown – recorded in LA in 1954, with a mixture of hard bop and lyricism, in that sparkling mode that Brownie left as his indelible imprint on the west coast scene of the 50s! Players include Bob Gordon on baritone, Stu Williamson on trombone, Zoot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Meet Mr Gordon
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good-
Brilliant work by one of our favorite talents of 50s west coast jazz! Bob Gordon was a baritone player, but one who really knew how to swing – and he worked in a style that was somewhere between Gerry Mulligan and Gil Melle, slightly modern, but never too out there – always sticking to ...

Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic live album by Gerry – featuring one set of tracks recorded in Stockton, CA in 1954, with Chico Hamilton, Red Mitchell, and Jon Eardley; and another recorded in San Diego the same year, with Zoot Sims, Bob Brookmeyer, Larry Bunker, Red Mitchell, and Eardley. Gerry even plays a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
